The load balancer seems nice. We used HAProxy, but it seemed like the sort of thing that Amazon could easily take care of on their own. I see that it has health checks, but I wonder if it's generally as nice and configurable as HAProxy.

Elastic Load Balancing isn't yet a replacement for HAProxy, for now it only seems to handle HTTP traffic, and not HTTPS: http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/ElasticLoadBalancing/lates...

I don't think HAProxy supports SSL either, does it? I had to put an nginx layer in front of HAProxy to get SSL working.

HAProxy certainly supports SSL.

Reference or tutorial?
